Record ID: GAT-A6CBA0
Object type: MOUNT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Isle of Anglesey
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Solid sub-rectangular mount, truncated at one end, with a denuded semi-circular incised dot pattern. The apparently-complete end is splayed-out and has a longitudinal sub-circular depression, c. 4.2mm in depth, 6.7mm in length and 4.0mm in width. It is unclear how wide the piece would have originally been. The extent to which the semi-circular patterns would have been completed, and the nature of the design is also unknown. It is possible that the current object represents roughly half the width of the original item, and that it would have once been decorated with circular motifs.…

Copper alloy ring. The ring has an hexagonal section with flat top and bottom and points on the inner and outer sides. It is 21.7mm in external diameter, 4.3mm wide by 2.6mm thick and weighs 3.78 grams. Such rings are very hard to date and had a variety of uses, most are suspension rings of some form from straps and harnesses although the point on the inside edge of this example may have made it less suitable for that use.

Object type: WEIGHT
Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: East Sussex
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
Cast lead disk shaped weight. On one side are the worn remains of a design possibly a buckle in a ring with three solid lobes around the ring. The buckle is the badge of the local Pelham family and was in use from 1350. It measures 48.24mm in diameter and is 13.58mm thick. It weighs 208.4grams. Simple lead weights were easily made and are hard to date precisely so a general later medieval to post medieval date is suggested.

An unidentified object which could possibly be a fragment from a torc or a bracelet. The object consists of a sub-spherical terminal attached to a curved arm. The arm, probably copper alloy based on its green surface colour, is U-shaped in section, with the channel largely filled with a similarly coloured metal, also probably a copper alloy, and which appears to be a continuation of the sphere. The exterior of the U-shaped section of the arm is decorated with three sets of transverse grooves - one at the terminal by the sphere, one near to the opposite terminal, and one between the tw…

Limestone bivalve fossil with carved face on one side. The face has pronounced lips & nose although the lower part of the nose is broken. The eyes are oval and recesed. There is further decoration in the form of two crescents with transverse grooves to either side of the head - these are perhaps intended to represent hair, horns, ears or some kind of headress. Stone carvings are notoriously difficult to date and therefore this item must remain undated. It was initially suspected that the item may be Late Iron Age to Roman period based on the style of the face and locally ass…

A cast silver element comprising two figures, a female standing nude with one knee raised, a smaller female figure next to her whose bust ends in a shaft. Broken off at the base. The function of this artefact is uncertain, though it is certainly post 16th Century. The metal (which might be base silver) and facture suggest a relatively recent date. Due to it's undiagnostic nature it is therefore my view that this does not represent Treasure under the terms of the Treasure Act 1996.

A small thin copper alloy disc, very slightly oval in plan. It is pierced by hole located just off centre and measuring 3.23mm x 2.98mm. One side of the disc appears brassy in colour (possibly gilded?). The edge is rounded (worn) on this face and the surface is slightly concave and irregular but with no discernible pattern. The other face of the disc is pinkish brown in colour with very slight bumps or protrusions covering the surface as if the disc has been hammered on a rough surface. There is a very fine incised line running around most of the circumference of the disc on this side…

A lead alloy standing perforated weight. The weight is 24.8mm long, 12.3mm wide and 10.9mm thick. It has a rectangular base and tapers to a point at the top which is perforated by a circular hole. The weight leans to one side. This weight has a mass of 14.7g. It may be significant that it is not far off being half an ounce (Biggs and Withers, 2000). Helen Geake writes: “It is very difficult to establish hard and fast rules with lead weights, as we have little material from excavated contexts to compare. The function of lead weights would have varied, from spindle whorls to fishing we…

A cast lead alloy vessel repair (pot mend) of either Roman (50-400 AD) or Medieval date (1200-1500 AD). The repair is irregular in shape; being broadly oval in plan and H shaped in cross section. The mends are relatively thick, both faces are uneven, one has a large oval impression like a thumb print. Very little of the pot is attached so it cannot be dated accurately. These types of mend were used within both the Roman and Medieval period. It is 42.8mm in length, 35.4mm wide, 11.6mm thick and weighs 76 grams.

A small cylindrical lead object of uncertain date, probably a weight. It has a flattened base and is approximately cylindrical in shape but with slightly faceted edges due to the manufacture process. The top of the object has two small knops and a larger, uneven projection. These are perhaps deliberate but may equally be a result of the casting process. It measures 14.77mm in height, 14.24mm in diameter at base, and weighs 18.83g. This is probably a small lead weight, perhaps of Medieval to Post-Medieval date, although an earlier or later date cannot be ruled out.

A copper alloy object. It has a shank of rounded profile, 2.25mm thick and 13mm in length. One terminal may be incomplete due to an old break. The opposite terminal flares into a semi-circular shape, 16.47mm wide and domed with a hollow back. The edges show more signs of wear than the domed area. There is further wear on the reverse along the edges, and within the central hollowed area are traces of a dull yellow-coloured coating. The object measures 26.19mm in surviving length and weighs 3.13g. It is possible that the object represents a terminal perhaps from a handle, or may have b…

Broad period: UNKNOWN
County: Cambridgeshire
Workflow stage: Published Find published
Treasure case: 2005 T582 Very small, flat, fragment of gold with evidence of hammering, possibly relating to scrapping. Too little survives to be able to make even a tentative identification and its exact age is thus unknown although it is likely to be over 300 years old. I can confirm that this find contains a minimum of 10 per cent gold. Consequently, it qualifies as Treasure under the stipulations of the Treasure Act 1996 in terms of both age and precious metal content.

County: Worcestershire
Workflow stage: Awaiting validation Find awaiting validation
An incomplete cast copper alloy scoop or implement of uncertain dating. The implement is sub rectangular in both plan and cross section. The front consists of a rectangular handle, with an oval depression (scoop) in the lower end. An old break is present at the upper point of the handle, where it has split into three thin metal rods. At this end of the handle, it would appear to be the start of openwork decoration, however due to the break, the exact form and style of this decoration is unknown. The back of the implement has a swelling at the back of the scoop, t…

Treasure case 2006 T280. post-medieval `ring' Silver `ring' formed from wire of round circular section, small, not a finger-ring, nor flattened in the manner of a vervel, therefore undiagnostic and of indeterminate date. Due to the undiagnostic nature of the find it can not be securely dated to pre-1706 and as such falls outside the provisions of the Treasure Act 1996.

What appears to be a cast lead pin head. The head is multi-faceted, with twelve faces in total, six on the upper half and six on the lower, with a ridge around the middle. Each half consists of two roughly trapezoid and four roughly triangular faces rising to form a long-sided point. The remains of the joint where the shaft would have been attached can be seen on the point of the lower half of the head, but the shaft itself has broken away and been lost. The metal is a whitish-grey colour and heavily oxidised.
